5 Dating Mistakes That Only Happen in the Age of Social Media
Talking about your date online. Whether it went good or really bad, posting a status update or tweeting about your time together is a big no-no—doesn't matter if it's about your date or the resto where he decided to take you. Believe it or not, there are still a lot of people who don't feel comfortable reading about what they've been up to online. If you feel like sharing how your moment with him went, just send your friends a message in your Viber group or a private message on Facebook. Just share the deets of your with the people whom you trust with whatever information you divulge.

Going out with someone "new" and not doing damage control first. So you've been through a breakup and now you finally want to explore the other fish in the sea. We totes understand where you're coming from, but please delete or at least hide all the photos of your ex first. Just put yourself in the shoes of your date. Would you like it if you dated someone who still stores these images on his account?ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Going online while you're out with someone. Be polite and spend time with the person who's sitting infront of you. He may be boring or really not interesting for you, but he took some time off his life to spend time with you. How would you feel if your date tinkered with his smartphone while you were talking to him? Bet you would really find that offensive, so don't do it to him.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Mentioning something which you could've only known by stalking him. Admit it, you stalk people you date, too. It's like doing research and making sure you have something to talk about when you eat dinner out together. That's good, but make sure you don't slip and say a few details which you could have only obtained by reading his super old posts, like who his kindergarten classmates are or where he had his first communion.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Documenting your date a little too much. It's a definite no-no especially when you're out on your first date. Try not to take stolen photos of him or style your meal so it'd look Instagram-worthy or take a selfie with him. We know you want to remember the first time you went out with this guy or post something about the wonderful place he's found for the two of you, but doing these things might just make him feel really awkward. Remember that, like you, he's also testing the waters still. Give him a little more time to warm up to you first.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
